1 The Latin is "cortex," which probably means a "bark," or "rind." Ajasson remarks upon the meagreness of the Latin language, in supplying appropriate words for scientific purposes, and congratulates himself upon adding the word, "carapax," (signifying "callipash," as we call it) to the Latin vocabulary.
3 Probably the Muræna helena of Linnæus. See more on it in c. 23 of the present Book.
4 Spoken of more fully in c. 23 of this Book.
